But an unique group of animals with their own extraordinary adaptations and social behavior. This picture shows a family group of Heterodontosaurus near the entry of their collective burrow. Taking the latest discoveries into account, we reconstructed them with a full set of porcupine-like quills for defence. Heterodontosaurus was a small, basal ornithischian from the Early Jurassic of South Africa. Its name ("differing tooth lizard") refers to its unusual dentition. Heterodontosaurus had the beak and chewing teeth common to most ornithischian dinosaurs, but it also had large "canines" and two other types of teeth that helped it chew its food efficiently.

Heterodontosaurus tucki the Goes the Whole (Hedge)Hog Small ornithischians, the quintessential "harmless herbivores" of the prehistoric world, have had one of the greatest image changes of the dinosaur renaissance in the recent years. Traditionally, these animals were usually portrayed as smaller versions of their larger relatives. " When illustrated, these generic, naked herbivores were mostly shown running, either away from a more interesting predator, or simply scampering across the landscape with no purpose or aim.

This paradox - this inherent contradiction - has remained throughout the history of palaeoart. Yes, there are efforts to be as rigorous as possible and to put in an enormous amount of unseen background research on the detailed anatomy of those fossil animals being reconstructed, but there are also quick and dirty ways of doing things where research is minimal. A large number of popular books about prehistoric animals use the work of individuals who do no research whatsoever, creating their digitally reconstructed animals simply by copying those depicted beforehand by other artists.
